STEAM EDUCATION is a new movement in American Education to help teachers and their students understand how the academic disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics impact their world and prepare them for the workforce of tomorrow. STEAM is multidiscipline based, incorporating the integration of other disciplinary knowledge into a new whole. Technology helps us communicate; Math is the language; Science and Engineering are the processes for thinking; all this leads to Innovation.
